Cemex USA plants earn ENERGY STAR status.

Five Cemex USA cement manufacturing plants have earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ENERGY STAR certification. The recognition of the plants in Brooksville and Miami, Fla.; Clinchfield, Ga.; Fairborn, Ohio; and Victorville, Calif.; demonstrates that these facilities perform among the top 25 percent of similar U.S. facilities for energy conservation.

This is the seventh consecutive year of certification for the Clinchfield plant, an achievement realized by only one other cement plant in the U.S. It is also the third consecutive certification for the Miami plant, and the second for the Brooksville, Victorville and Fairborn plants.

Throughout the year, all of the recognized plants put into practice the energy efficiency principles established by the ENERGY STAR Guidelines for Energy Management developed by EPA. These plants implemented energy conservation and monitoring technologies, promoted energy efficiency awareness among employees and completed energy reduction projects.

"Cemex is honored to be recognized for its ongoing achievements in energy efficiency," said Karl Watson, Jr., president of Cemex USA.

"Through consistent enhancements to our energy initiatives year after year, Cemex demonstrates a true commitment to its sustainability goals, and looks forward to continuing its work with the EPA's ENERGY STAR program to attain them."

Cemex is a corporate partner of the ENERGY STAR program and is an active proponent of the importance of energy efficiency. The ENERGY STAR program is an EPA initiative that focuses on strategic energy management and emphasizes the importance of demonstrating environmental leadership for future generations.
